SCIENCE & RELIGION 




TEILHARD IN THE 21ST CENTURY
The emerging Spirit of Earth
Arthur Fabel & Donald St John, Editors

Almost fifty years after his death the work of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, French Jesuit mystic and scientist, continues to shape contemporary work in spirituality, theology, and the interaction of science and religion. 
Writers include: Thomas Berry, Brian Swimme, Ursula King, Mary Evelyn Tucker, John Haught, Eulalio Balthasar and Joseph Grau.
“De Chardin continues to be a key thinker for an ecological theology. This collection of essays is indispensable for an introduction to recent reflection on his relevance.”

THE SINGING HEART OF THE WORLD
Creation, Evolution and Faith
John Feehan

The central argument in this book is that human reason occupies the pivotal position which science claims for it, but that the scientific endeavour itself penetrates insufficiently deeply into the human encounter with reality, and is on this account inadequately rational.
The book begins with an overview of the universe that science has unfolded for our contemplation and response, and ends with the argument that future humanity can thrive only through the unfettered exercise of reason allied with virtue and grounded in faith in a God who is now seen to be utterly greater than the smaller Gods of a more restricted view of reality.
John Feehan is a senior lecturer in environmental science at the School of Agriculture, Food Science and Veterinary Medicine, University College Dublin. He also delivers modules on science and religion and encounter with the natural world on the Masters programme in Ecology and Religion at the Ecological Institute at Dalgan Park.
